Come on Shore and We Will Kill You and Eat You All: An Unlikely Love Story
Come on Shore and We Will Kill You and Eat You All: An Unlikely Love Story
by Christina Thompson
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Formal research gets personal., 31 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This account of the impact of the West on indigenous Pacific peoples is illuminated by the writer's personal account of meeting and marrying a Maori. Their mutual respect and tolerance is a delight, as is the encounter between the unreconstructed New Zealander and the author's respectable Bostonian family.

I loved this when it first came out for Goodall's choice of milestones, and for his clarity of explanation without talking down to the popular audience. It stands the test of time.

Though there is some editing, the essentials remain and are given life, interest and contemporary relevance. This is the 'now' generation of actors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Passion and intelligence, 1 May 2011
This review is from: King Lear [DVD] (DVD)
Trevor Nunn treats the text of this play with much more respect than he treated that of Twelfth Night (with Bonham Carter et al), and he allows his superb cast to expose the heart of this most challenging of tragedies with passion and subtlety, in a setting reasonably free from details that would undermine its universality.

2.0 out of 5 stars Savaged, 1 May 2011
This review is from: King Lear [DVD] (DVD)
With names like Paul Scofield and Peter Brook, how could it go so wrong?! The frigid, bleak, savage setting (Danish winter) promised much, but the savaging of the text disconcerted, and the so very understated monotones in which the lines were delivered irritated me beyond measure.
